Check out our preview of Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, the giant-mech fighting simulation game that uses your Kinect to help put you in the cockpit of a huge war-robot. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor features online co-op in which you and your squad mates work together in the control room of a mech to deal death to all foes.
Kevin "Machine Gun" Kelly put the game's co-op through its paces, and let us in on how the game feels. It's slow, but slow isn't bad. Here's a taste of Kelly's Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor preview.
"One thing to keep in mind heading into this title is that isn’t a breakneck speed run and gun. Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is a methodical tank battle using old-school technology, and it is paced more like a World War II tank battle. Although it can get exciting at times (remember to hit your exhaust vent to clear smoke from the cockpit, keep your shutter closed when you’ve been damaged, and don’t poke your head out the hatch when snipers are nearby), you’re going to need to become a quick study in flanking and footwork at a lower speed, just like the previous (and wonderful) two Steel Battalion titles."
